Though I had expected that June would keep me way more busy than May, there was an incredible amount of work to do for university. Next to that, I had also been travelling for work, so I fell behind in blogging. Today, I thought I’d write up a review of the Mary Lou Manizer, a fantastic highlighter that I’ve been using on a daily basis for the past two months. Originally, it was a blind buy based on a sea of positive reviews, but I discovered how great this lumanizer was when I fell sick with tonsillitis and had to leave the house looking somewhat decent.
I purchased the Mary Lou Manizer on Feelunique for €18.40 using a 20% discount code. Watching out for discount codes can be a great way to save money on sites like Feelunique, HQHair and Lookfantastic. The price of the product now seems to be close to €25, so it’s quite a luxury buy. The company The Balm makes two highlighters, one being the golden version called Mary-Lou Manizer and the other being its pinkish sister Cindy-Lou Manizer. Both receive raving reviews in the beauty world, but Mary-Lou Manizer seems to be the more popular version due to its golden sheen.
The luminizer can be used as a highlighter, shimmer and eyeshadow. It comes in super trendy, vintage-style packaging. Inside the round plastic container equipped with a mirror, you receive 8.5 grams of product. This could last you forever! The luminizer is super duper shiny and a little goes a looong way. What I love most about this luminizer is the fact that it only contains the finest shimmer and there is no chunky glitter to make you glow like a disco ball. It’s highly blendable and it’s very easy to build up the shine by adding more product, so you’re able to go from a light sheen to a strong glow without a problem. I love using it on my browbone to add a nice highlight to my eyes. I definitely don’t regret this blind buy because it’s a product I adore so much, and I feel like it’ll last me forever!
